“2 amazing features”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2014

My stay at this hotel was made special for only 2 reason, but they were big reasons. 1. When I booked to stay here, I had no idea that we would get a balcony overlooking Ipanema beach, it was amazing. The night we arrived was a massive concert on the beach that we watched from the balcony WOW.

2. The rooftop pool is incredible!!! You can lookout over the beach and mountains in the distance. Loved it!

The rooms are nothing special.

Hotel staff wouldn't let us come in the front door after we came back from the beach in our beach clothes, and made us use a staff door. They were very rude about it too.

The pool area is very good, very classy, the view is beautiful from the top floor. I chose a room on the 15th floor, very spacious. However, I had a problem with the toilet, the water discharge was unregulated and leaked in the bathroom, it took over half an hour for someone to come fix and dry the floor. The breakfast was poor, with few options came at 10:15 and they did not replace it.

Room Tip: escolha a vista de frente para a praia, esquina com a vista da lagoa.

Very well located, Ipanema-Leblon.
Good service, decent breakfast, excellent roof restaurant (view and food).
But Wi-Fi is paid and unstable. It is second time I stayed there they continue with this same wi-fi problem.

Room Tip: Front seaside room. Corner suites have better view. Higher floors are quieter.

When I got to my room, I found items from a previous guest, when I mentioned it to them, they dismissed like if it wasn't a big deal. Even an used soap was in the shower stall. Then I had to call the front desk because I couldn't connect to the Internet, which they charge extra for it, they just forgot about me. I had to call the front desk three times. Breakfast is ok, you can't compare to the wonderful feast the other hotels on the beach offer. I was disappointed. The rooms are simple, not very comfortable, the rooftop bar was a disaster, poor selection of wines and the bartender warning us at arrival: we just make caipirinhas. So we left. The view is magnificent, the location is wonderful, but next time I will stay somewhere else.

Room Tip: All the rooms have an ocean view.

This is hard to rate. The room was very simple, but at least clean. Unfortunately we had an extremely loud AC.-noise in our room, without using it, it was just a noise which you can hear all over the hotel. This really drove us crazy in the nights. The staff was super nice and tried everything, even though probably realizing, there was no way to stop it. Wonderful was the rooftop pool with a stunning view over Praia Ipanema. Also the breakfast in the restaurant on top, even though we had the breakfast paid for the normal restaurant on level 2, was great and worth spending the money for it. All in all, sorry we would not come back, as we are very bad with such noises. The location of the hotel was at least during world cup very safe and you could walk miles at the beaches.

Nice clean hotel rooms with small balconies overlooking the Praia do Ipanema with clean bath rooms. Breakfast is ok and the lobby has nice bartenders serving caipirinha and some internet-connected computers for free use. The hotel is ideally situated on the beach and beach towels and chairs provided. Nice staff and nice surroundings, close access to transportation and to good restaurants made our stay relaxing and pleasant. Having lived in Rio de Janeiro 40 years (!) ago it was just wonderful to be back and feel at home again!

Room Tip: All rooms are beach-front with small balconkes. The higher floor, the better view of the beach and t...

Praia Ipanema has a great location in ipanema beach. If going to brazil, stay in ipanema away from all noisy tourists who are in Copacabana.

The rooms in Praia Ipanema are good and simple. Nothing very luxurious really, which is somewhat a disappointment as it is an expensive hotel. The view from the swimming pool in the top floor is simply spectacular, however it was closed one night for a private event. Internet is not free, and again, for how much you are paying it should be. Service was good, even though our stay was during WC Brazil.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a beach view
